    DescriptionTelling the story of Buck Brannaman's life, this book gives horse owners the keys to understanding their animals. Buck Brannaman is a horse gentler - not a horse breaker - who has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics. Buck Brannaman's method of training focuses on communicating with horses, reading their body language and making them feel safe so that horse and rider can achieve a true union and in this book, he shares the knowledge he has cultivated over a lifetime. He also provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer, for which he was the technical advisor.

    Review quote
    "Some books are read for their lyricism and literary merit, while books like Brannaman's autobiography are often read more for the insights of a remarkable life. Equal parts life history and specifics of dealing with challenging horses, Brannaman's wisdom is not just suited to horse lovers, but will resonate for anyone who wants to live more harmoniously." --BIG SKY JOURNAL"Brannaman is insightful enough to understand what he's learned from horses, mature enough to apply what he's learned, and articulate enough to pass those thoughts along simply and directly. There's really no need for literary gymnastics. Instead, this is one of those books that stays quietly with you." --DENVER POST"An engaging read. At Heart, The Faraway Horses is a rich and rewarding autobiography that offers a prescription for living a positive and harmonious life - with horses or even without them." --COWBOYS & INDIANS magazine"This autobiography of a cowboy who's a gentler, not a breaker, is a happy mix of eye-opening instruction and inspiration." --TRUE WEST magazine"This book is written in a straightforward style that keeps the reader wanting to learn more. Readers will enjoy the poignant life of one of America's top cowboys. It is nice to know that the horse has an advocate like Buck Brannaman." -- HORSE CONNECTION magazine
    Back cover copy
    Nearly every week of the year, Buck Brannaman is on the road, conducting horsemanship clinics in which he teaches horse owners how to better understand and work with their animals, creating a relationship based on trust and respect rather than force. Buck''s skills have become legendary in fact, the main character in Robert Redford''s film The Horse Whisperer was based largely on him, and he served as the director''s technical adviser during the shoot. "These principles are really about life - about living your life so you''re not at war with the horse, or with other people," Buck writes. At heart, this rich and rewarding autobiography is ultimately a prescription for living a harmonious existence - whether it involves horses or not.
